The Press Says

En un mot, un jeu fort sympathique. Le titre a certes vieilli et peut paraître répétitif voire enfantin, mais il conserve un charme indéniable et reste l’un des meilleurs jeux de stratégie pour deux joueurs de cette époque.
The DOS Spirit
På toppen av det hele har spillet muligheter for 2-spiller, slik at du og bestekameraten din kan begge få nyte godt av underholdningen og en dose amerikansk historie i samme slengen. Nord og Sør, eller "North & South" kom på totalt 8 (!) forskjellige platformer, blant disse Dos og NES. Grafikken er flott og lyden superb med tanke på hvor lite spillet faktisk er (570kb). Happy krigføring!
Computer Gaming World (CGW)
The comic-book version of the American Civil War, this product leans heavily toward arcade-type play and graphic sequences. A French import, it is just about what one would expect from a country which has made Jerry Lewis a national icon.
Power Play
Das Bürgerkriegs-Spektakel "North & South" auf dem PC unterscheidet sich kaum von der Amiga-Fassung. Nur die Grafik und der Sound sind etwas magerer.
